Changing the "Current Profile" of my burner on Toast 7.1.2 Titanium

Dave Newman


Not sure if this is going to make sense, but I'm capable of doing everything I want with my new external Lacie DL burner...except burn DL DVD's!


When I insert a blank DVD+R DL disc, Toast's "Disc Info" displays the following:


Medium Type: DVD+R Double Layer

DVD Book Type: DVD+R DL

Space Available: 31.25 GB

Space Used: 0 KB

Write Speeds: 2x

Diameter: 120mm

Layers: dual, opposite track path

Manufacturer ID: RITEKD01

Content Type: Blank


We seem to be good there.


However, on "Recorder Settings"...no matter what I do, it always seems to revert to "DVD+R" as the current profile (in spite of the fact that "DVD+R DL" seems to be among the possible options.)


This is what I see:

Would anyone have an idea as to how I can "force" the program to accept the unit's current profile as that of a dual-layer burner?


I'd be EXTREMELY grateful!


Thanks much,

Just wanted to follow up and let you know that the sole problem was the burner not caring for the first blank DVD+R DL's I'd gotten for it. (Fuji, by the way.)


Although I'm definitely relieved, I can't believe I went through that much heartache...and it turned out to be something that stupid!


Well, it's now working like a champ...so I'm happy!


Thanks for your help.

I can at least confirm that you have a problem. When I insert a DVD+R DL disc the profile for my LaCie drive changes to DVD+R DL. But even your Disc Info is messed up because it claims you DL disc can hold 31.25 GB of data. Would that make it an 8-L disc?


This could be a firmware issue with the drive that prevents it from properly recognizing Ritek DL discs. LaCie drives do work well with Verbatim DVD+R DL media. I'd test with that brand before deciding if I have a drive or OS issue. Also, if you haven't already done this, download and install the most recent firmware from LaCie's support site.

Thanks for the response.


Yeah, I was thinking that the "31.25 GB" of space available (while it would be nice) was kinda screwy, too.


I've downloaded Lacie's current firmware updates...but I'll definitely try some Verbatim blanks tomorrow.


Thanks for the tip...I'll keep my fingers crossed, and let you know whether or not it works!


(...And Merry Christmas!)
